What Was The Worst Job You Ever Had?

I am the queen of bad jobs. I had my first at age 15 when my dad informed me I’d be working at the local dry cleaners for the summer. It was a very long three months at $5 an hour. I took my next bad job as a hostess at Chili’s thinking it would be a good job. Free Awesome Blossoms! It was not as awesome as I thought. It turns out hungry people are a**holes and onion rings are so much grosser when you know how they’re made. I quit after I discovered a couple having sex in a booth. Eww! Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Lies About His Porn Viewing”

I’ve been with my boyfriend — my first boyfriend — for almost two years now. I am away from home at school, only an hour and half drive away, and we see each other every weekend. He stays with me when he comes to visit. Recently the past couple of times he has come to visit, he uses my computer while I am away for class for a couple hours. At this recent account, I came back to my room and noticed that the floor was a little damp in a certain area right next to his chair. I asked him what happened and he said he spilled something. Later after he left, I was on my computer and up popped up porn sites. Then it dawned on me that he had not spilled something on the floor … if you know what I mean … So, I checked my history and found even more porn sites. According to the timeline of the days’ events, I know he looked at this right after I left for class, so right when he woke up and got out of bed.

Girl Talk: I Thought I Was A Lesbian

It has been a big year for me. I switched jobs; I moved to another city; and finally removed myself from a lengthy and unhealthy relationship. I’ve always known that as one door closes, another one opens. And after going through that grueling breakup, I met and fell in love with the man of my dreams. Meeting “The One” — corny, yes, but bear with me — has been so rewarding and enlightening, especially given the stark contrast between him and my ex. The biggest difference: “The One” is a man, and my ex is a woman.

I met “Her” at work. Keep reading »

Infographic: What Your Bridesmaids’ Dress Color Says About You

Kim Kardashian is getting hitched this weekend, and her family isn’t telling us too much about how things we’ll be going down. Mom Kris Jenner tells us that Kim is cool as a cucumber. Luckily, Khloe Kardashian let a little more slip. She divulged that (gasp!) Kim’s bridesmaids will be wearing (ZOMG!) green. Now, I love green—all shades, from mint to kelly to hunter. But I do think it’s a slightly strange color to pick for bridesmaid dresses because the first thing that will pop into the guests’ minds when they see them will be “green with envy.” And who wants their bridesmaids to be envious? [People]

This got me thinking—do different bridesmaid dress colors send subtle subliminal messages to guests? Obviously. After the jump, our taxonomy of what different bridesmaid dress colors say about you. Keep reading »

Text Messages Are Useless … Hormonally Speaking

Text messaging may have changed the way we communicate, but it will never change the way we communicate. According to a new study, text messages do not have the power to change a person’s hormone levels the way human voices do. Researchers found that girls who received phone calls or in-person visits from their mothers while doing stressful tasks were hormonally altered while those who received a text message were not. The girls who heard their mother’s voices showed a drop in cortisol (the stress hormone) levels and an increase oxytocin levels (the love hormone).*** Keep reading »

An Online Dating Site For The Sexless

So, maybe sex is off the table for you for whatever reason — emotional, physical, or spiritual — does that mean you shouldn’t have romance in your life? No, of course not. There’s a place for all of us in the dating world. Created by a cervical cancer survivor, 2Date4Love.com is a dating forum for people who cannot (or do not want to) engage in sexual intercourse, but still seek love, companionship, and intimacy. After founder Laura Brashier underwent chemotherapy, she found sex to be too painful, but did not want to give up on the hope of finding love. “I didn’t want to be alone. This was the reason I went online,” Laura said. “My reason is to help a lot of people like me if I can.” I really think this site will help people. As someone who has mixed feelings about the gimmicky slickness of many online dating sites, I find this to be a really wonderful concept. [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
